Very Early 1/2in Astragal Molding Plane.
This plane has many owners' marks on the toe, one of which unfortunately obstructs most of the original maker's mark.

This plane cuts an astragal a total of 1/2in wide including the fillet at the edge. The bead itself is only 1/4in wide. It has a clean blade and is completely usable.

Wartime Stanley no. 4 Smooth Plane.
This plane was made during WWII and shows some of the results of supply shortages. It has hardwood handles rather than rosewood. The adjusting wheel is made of Bakelite, not brass. There is still some brass trim on the ends of the handle hardware. The frog also has its adjuster so it's not a full-on wartime plane. It's a bit dark in places, but the japanning is near-perfect. There are no cracks or chips in the knob or tote. The blade is quite decent- long and free of pitting. It's a solid user smooth plane made during an interesting time in the company's history

Excellent 16in Jack Plane.
This plane is clean and crisp with almost no wear. The mouth is still tight and the open tote is perfect. It has a 2 1/4in wide double iron made by Moulson Brothers. The blade is massive- thick and tapered and quite clean. There's a small area of discoloration at the end you can see in the photos. There's a few pinpricks of pitting that should be noted but it's still an exceptional blade. The plane has a lignum strike at the toe. It has a very faint mark I can't read. It's definitely American. I'm going to guess it's a Chapin based on the quality of the build. Regardless of whomever made it, it's going to be an outstanding worker.

Outstanding and Unusual "Duplex" Turning Saw.
This saw is unique in my experience- it has two blades: a wide rip blade on one side, a thinner traditional turning saw blade on the other. I'm almost certain that the frame is maple. The arms slide through a through mortise in the stretcher. It's a very elegant design and expertly executed. It works well and has no flaws. It's very interesting and unusual.

Clark and Williams Jack Plane.
Here's something you won't often see for sale- this plane was made by the famous planemaking duo Bill Clark and Larry Williams in 2008. Clark and Williams was the precursor to Old Street Tool, for those who don't know. It's 15in long with a 1 3/4in wide single iron. It's a beautifully made plane, as you'd expect. It's seen some use and has some slight scratches on the sole and toe. The blade is still near-perfect. These planes were made to be used, not to sit on a shelf so the wear is not unexpected. You'll need to wait in line if you want to purchase one of these new from Old Street. This one can be had in just 1-3 days via the USPS. A great opportunity for a fantastic plane made by a modern master

Rare Wedge-Arm 3/16in Double Reeding Plane.
This plane cuts two side-by-side 3/16in beads anywhere along the length of a board. It has an adjustable fence to regulates the distance it works from the edge. It was made by Atkin & Son in Brimingham, a top quality maker in the 19th century. This plane is very well-made, as are all Atkin's planes. The fit and finish is first class. One example- there is a very small, fragile fillet at the edge of the fence to allow the plane to cut its beads right at the edge of a board. This small detail is still intact and is free of damage. The boxing is still dead straight. the blade is clean and has plenty of life left. It's specialized, unusual plane in perfectly usable condition.. one of only one or two examples I've ever seen.

Exceptional 3/4in Side Bead Molding Plane.
This plane was made by David Kimberly in Birmingham in the last half of the 19th century. It's a top quality British plane in every way. It's seen very little use and is in outstanding condition. There are no flaws or damage. The blade is near-perfect. I'll make a fantastic worker for cutting larger house moldings. About as nice as they come.

Early 3/8in Dado Molding Plane.
This plane was made by Thomas or John Moon in London likely in the first half of the 19th century. It's a very well made plane with a nicely sculpted escapement and perfectly functional depth stop. It's dead on straight and has two long, clean blades. The 3/8in size is hard to find and always in high demand. This one is about as good a worker as you could ask for

5/16in Slipped Side Bead Molding Plane.
This plane was made by Richard Nelson in London between 1831-52 according to Goodman. The plane cuts a 5/16in side bead, a useful size that isn't too common. The plane is a slipped side bead meaning there are small pieces of wood on the escapement side that can be removed to sink a deeper bead or to allow the plane to work closed to other molding elements in a built-up molding. Odd are you'll never remove them. It's a notable feature since slipped side beads were usually made by top British makers (I haven't seen an American slipped bead I can remember) and is the mark of a high quality plane. This example has seen use and is still in excellent condition. There is some light wear to the wedge finial. The boxing is dead straight and the blade long and clean. A nice usable example in a scarce size

Unusual, Small Steel-Soled Wooden Smooth Plane.
This plane was made by E&J Evans in Rochester, NY. The firm worked from 1841-85 according to AWP-IV. It's unusually small at only 6 1/2in long with a 1/2in wide iron. It's also steel-shod which gives it a good heft and excellent wear resistance. The blade was made by Sandusky- it's incredibly thick at the business end and tapered. It's clean, free of pitting and has plenty of length left. It's an interesting plane that will make a great worker
